From I-77 take Rockside Road exit and head west on Rockside Road. Turn left onto Broadview Road and head south to West Ridgewood Drive. (St. Sava Church is on the corner.) Turn right onto West Ridgewood Drive. West Creek Reservation will be on your left shortly.
Follow the brave knights in your quest across the field. Continue until you come to the Bridge of Death.
Answer the Old Manís questions, three, to find the box you seek.

2. What is your quest?
3. What is your favorite quest?

5. What is your favorite color?
I donít think I need to tell you what
happens if you got one wrong!
You will follow it around the Electrical Dragon to the right and enter the woods.
Keep on the gravel path. It will
bring you to a fork. Go up the hill to the right.
As you go up the hill you will pass a sign for the NatureWorks cardinal (missing?). Beware, he eats brave knights.
The trail bends to the left and keeps climbing. Sure glad youíre on your trusty steed! Clippity, clop, clippity, clop.
Stop at the first drainage pipe you come to. And look right at 280į for Cerebus (the 3-headed dog, not the aardvark). Take 15 single-stepped paces to this monster you must slay. When he has perished look at his feet for your prize under the hollow log.
Cover well and be stealthy. There could be blood-thirsty bunnies in the area. Please contact us when you find this LB and give us a status update! Thanks!
